It might shock you, but it's completey legal, at least in most jurisdictions.

The (GPL) license puts some requirements on distribution, but you don't
have to mention the terms in the advertising for it, nor must it be
distributed for free.

"free" refers to the terms that source code is distributed at no extra
charge and with full modification rights, not to the actual price.

(see the GPL FAQ at http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html for more info)

It is possible that those two fail to fulfill the licensing requirements,
but to know that you must buy the software and check.
